I made this little dude for my dear friend Cora Dean. (I need to show y’all the gorgeous magical girl plague doctor she sculpted me sometime.) But anyway, she loves the Mothman and so do I.
And here’s progress shots of me making him, at my cheerfully Christmas Penguin themed kitchen table. Yes, my kitchen table is and shall forever be my art studio.
Yeah I was gonna post this what…on Halloween? As usual, I had shows and freelance jobs ruling my life and those are deadlines I can’t budge on. But hey! Better late than never, right?
On a side note, all of the original works are available as 4×6 and 8×10 prints on request. Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll set it up.
Would you know it, my phone died while I was setting up. No event photos for me! Fortunately for you all, I went and grabbed a lot of art for myself. So I can at least show you pics of what I bought. If I get permission, I’ll also feature some other pieces of art I admired that I know people took pictures of, so stay tuned for a possible update.
First off, the featured image above is a painting on poster-board by Ryan McCain, who somehow manages to be an amazing artist and a heck of a nice guy as well!! He has a huge body of work and he’s done mural work too…I’m a new huge fan. The second image of a creepy and fascinating guy is by Ryan too:
Below, I also snatched up a gorgeous little wire and bead tree on driftwood by Damon Murray. Next year this sculpture artist will have an even more amazing array of art, which will be hard considering how beautiful all of his trees and other small wire sculptures are. But he’s experimenting with MAGNETS now!! Our fellow artist Megan Black showed me an amazing little spider he made that actually moves and dances because of magnets. It was awesome…
Speaking of Megan Black! Check this out: this year she premiers her new loveable and intricate Voodoo Babiez styles!! Each one of these individual dolls is painstakingly and lovingly crafted with Meghan’s love rather than with bad juujuu, and I GOT ONE. Not only one, a PINK BUNNY ONE. …yeah my excitement pretty much knew no bounds when I took this little lady home…
Lastly, I grabbed an amazing Monster Pin-Up Calender by Christy Jochum!
I also admired everyone else’s stuff including all the amazing vintage paintings and drawings by Lisa Herzog.
It was a fantastic event and a great night all around, I can’t wait to see who will be there next year!
Haha YES, I’ve chosen the day I’m at both Night Gallery and Nomadic Views to unveil a secret…I’m doing the October Sketch Challenge again! If you’re in Evansville, IN feel free to stop by The Ahh Spa between 5:45pm and 9pm and say Hi!! If you’re in Nashville, TN look out for original drawn-on pigment prints of my pieces DIVE and City Eye at the Corvidae Collective Gallery in the Arcade!!
That’s right, one scary sketch a day, for every delicious spooky day in October. BOO! Here’s my first four sketches, I’ll attempt to do something close to a one-a-day update after tonight. You can watch the updates roll in over at http://sandpaperdaisy.tumblr.com!!
If you don’t recognize these creepy beasties by the way, they are animatronics from the amazing horror video game 5 Nights at Freddy’s. I fell in love with this chilling and creepy game after watching Markiplier‘s youtube videos of it. I can’t get enough!! Don’t be surprised if there’s more Freddy in my sketches over the month.
As with my 2013 round of sketches, I’ll be updating this website after October with a massive gallery of the entire month’s sketches for you to enjoy.
The Ruby Machine 6 page comic has been uploaded in full to read from this website, enjoy!
Sketch which I’m going to be turning into collage/decoupage on a wood panel for an upcoming show on Mythmaking! Kaguya Hime is a celestial princess who was a refugee from the moon in the early Japanese narrative, “The Bamboo Cutter’s Tale.”
I realize Sailor Moon and other more light-hearted stories have their genesis in this legend, but I tried to make my Moon Princess more sinister and enigmatic!
I made this a couple of years back for a Night Gallery show but I would have done it anyway. I absolutely adore H. P. Lovecraft and “The Call of Cthulhu” is a magnificent story.
I need to illustrate more of his works, there are so many I love. So far I’ve tried drawing the High Priest of Leng from The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath, Nyarlathotep’s form from The Beast, a Fungi from Yuggoth, the Colour Out of Space, and Walter de la Poer from The Rats in the Walls. I’ve made a little one-inch Re-animator pinback button too! There are many more things I want to try.
Cthulhu here is available as a print, iPad/laptop case, and other things on Society6||Redbubble.
I’m proud to say that my horror and mythos art is platered all over the August 2013 issue of The Horror Zine and The Crowd also appearing in their print version! You can view it here: http://www.thehorrorzine.com/Art/Aug2013/HeatherLandry/HeatherLandry.html
